Finally, a Refined Approach

The article comments on the approach being used by the U.S. Congress in legislating energy bills. The House of Representative approved another energy bill that would make it easier to build new refineries in the U.S. in October 2005. The bill would allow President George W. Bush to designate certain federal lands as sites for new refineries. One of the disadvantages of the legislation is that it requires the Federal Trade Commission to examine possible price-gouging in gasoline and diesel fuel sales. The Congress must address the issue on oil and gas exploration in a tiny segment of the immense Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
